Commercial Law – Commercial Contracts

In today’s economic climate it is critical that businesses have in place commercial arrangements that enable them to take full advantage of the benefits open to them but also provide protection when things go wrong.

MJD Solicitors is experienced in working with an array of commercial agreements and frequently undertakes contract drafting and negotiating on a range of commercial agreements for its clients. When a disagreement arises as to the interpretation of a contractual arrangement, MJD Solicitors is well positioned to provide an opinion on the likely effect of the contractual drafting and to assist in avoiding damaging and costly disputes.

We also act for clients setting up new business ventures and acquiring or selling existing businesses. We draft partnership agreements, shareholder agreements and can assist in share transfers and acquisitions.

When drafting commercial documents it is important that the commercial objectives are borne in mind and the client is given the opportunity to comment on those risks he considers important and those that are frankly not real. Giving effect to client intent whilst ensuring the client is not exposed to unforeseen risk are paramount.
